Today’s Special: Boulevard’s Beer Backpack at the K [Video]


Kansas City is full of tastes and tastemakers. With Today’s Special — our new video series with KCPT’s Flatland — we recently had the chance to explore just a few of the drinks and eats that require your full gustatory attention. Over the course of five weeks (this is week two), we’ll take you inside the process behind some amazing bites and sips during your Thursday lunch hour. Watch the video above and then pop by Flatland for the back story.

In this episode, we talked with Boulevard’s Neil Witte about how he built the draft beer dispensing backpacks at Kauffman Stadium, which the vendors lovingly refer to as “proton packs.” This is tale of Boulevard’s beer backpacks and, yes, you’ll want one under the tree this year.

For last week’s episode, we tackled the Z-man at Joe’s Kansas City. We’ll also tell you the tale of the pork tenderloin sliders at The Rieger, the Hemingway Daiquiri at Julep (featuring special guest Christopher Elbow) and Oddly Correct’s hop toddy. We hope you enjoy Today’s Special.

Think we should do more? Tell us where to go next.
